To create this outstanding blend of fine Scotch malt whisky Hunter Laing have selected whiskies from the very finest distilleries to be found in the Scottish Highlands.
The balance of smoothness and complexity of flavour and aroma comes from blending whiskies some of which have been matured in American oak casks and some in Spanish sherry casks. Stewart Hunter Laing’s journey began more than sixty years ago when his father took him, as a boy, on the train from Glasgow to the Highlands visiting places such as Blair Athol, Clynelish and Glen Garioch.
Highland Journey is a golden coloured whisky with a robust, full bodied nose of rich, sweet aromas such as vanilla custard, fudge, toffee apples and puff candy .Creamy and buttery on the palate it is initially sweet before developing with vanilla custard powder, apricots, peaches and pears like a fruit salad. A relatively short finish – sweet with hints of oak and nuts.
